Community Meeting

September 14, 2011 by Anonymous

Event Date: 
Mon, 10/03/2011 - 6:30pm

The Aledo Independent School District will host community meetings Oct. 3 and Oct. 4 on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness.

The Oct. 3 meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at the Daniel Ninth Grade Campus.

McAnally Intermediate will host the Oct. 4 meeting at 6:30 p.m.

Attendees will receive an overview of STAAR and the changes it represents for graduation requirements and state-mandated testing for students in grades three through 12.

The STAAR test is replacing the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, or TAKS test, which is the criterion-referenced assessment program that has been in place since 2003.

STAAR includes the 12 end-of-course assessments mandated by SB 1031 in 2007, and the new grade three-through-eight assessments mandated by HB 3 in 2009.

The new tests will be implemented this school year.

To view the testing calendar, other pertinent parent resource links and frequently asked questions, go to the Aledo ISD website at www.aledo.k12.tx.us and click on accountability.
